The regulation aims to create greater efficiency in EU markets by helping retail investors better understand and compare different PRIIPs. Retail investors are retail clients who do not qualify as professional clients under MiFID.

Our PRIIPs Regulation Course reviews the key points of the PRIIPs Regulation, including the production and delivery of mandatory key information to retail investors.
